I am new to the affiliate marketing scene and have spent the last two weeks or so reading and learning as much as possible. Today I decided to just try a campaign out despite not knowing that much. I don’t have great expectations of profit, but at the least I will learn something and gain some experience.
I am still waiting to be approved by a bunch of affiliate networks so my options as far as offers are a bit limited. I decided to try an acne offer and advertise on Facebook.
I found some unique/slightly weird images related to acne, then looked up the demographics that visited sites like proactiv.com etc. Majority of the visitors were older females around 30-55.
So I broke my campaign into ads that targeted the following:
- Females, 25-34
- Females 34-44
- Females, 44-54
I started with 4 different images for each group.
The problem came when I tried to get the ads approved. None went through as a result of a bad url. First I tried the link that tracking202 gave me. Didnt work. Then I took a domain I have and had it redirect to the tracking202 url and tried that. Didnt work. Finally I just tried to have the domain redirect to my affiliate offer url. That didnt work either.
Maybe these were dumb actions and maybe this is a dumb question…but what do I have to do to get a url that will be approved?
Also another unrelated question I have concerns the size of my demographics. There was 20-30 million in each group…which is probably way to big. Should I be targeting specific cities or keywords as well in order to reduce the number of people the ads reach?
I can post the pictures I used and the title/ad text if this will help.
man thats a whole lotta questions…..
but on the fb issue go here…. https://www.mywot.com/ before you try to get anything approved on FB put the end url in there and see what comes back….
as far as the other question is concerned…..i would post a follow along…
Ok I can simplify it. My main question is this:
What do I need to do to get my urls approved by Facebook?
Ok maybe I wasnt quite clear in my post…..but
if the site is red….or has a poor rating there is nothing you can do..fb wont approve it….the only way you could get it on fb is with a lp…..
